This was an outstanding experience. I was tentative about going sinceI thought it would be similar to Indian food, but to my surprise, it was one of the most delicious meals (not like Indian food at all) that I have ever had, The lamb chops were superb and the pumpkin side dish could have been a dessert,

Our Kabobs were cooked as... More

Dependably excellent! Their shish kabob is the best I've ever had, be it chicken, lamb or beef. The Afghan veggies(try the pumpkin!), dumplings and dessert are all interesting and delicious. I loved everything I've tried here PLUS the prices are very fair. Highly recommended!!

I will get back there. The food was very good. I had a soup with lentils and a main dish with lamb cooked in spinach. Everything was very tasty and the lamb was very, very tender. The atmosphere is quite, with candlelight and low volume ambient oriental music. Certainly a different experience on Camino Real.

This is the second time I've been here with friends. The food is soooo good. I had lamb kabobs with a seasoned rice that was so tender and delicious. The bread is warm, soft, and fabulous. The appetizers are top notch. The service is wonderful. I can't say enough good things and wish I could give it more than 5... More

Kabul's restaurant offers a pleasant atmosphere, attentive service, reasonable prices and above all an excellent menu of Afghan specialties served in generous quantities. This is a good place to go if the palate yearns for Afghan taste.

I was brought to this restaurant by a friend and found the food to be delicious, service excellent and atmosphere good. Portions are generous and could be shared. Definitely a good value as well.
